Ronetta Gail Miller

June 8, 1942 — March 30, 2024

Ronetta "Ronnie" Gail Young Miller peacefully passed away on Saturday, March 30, at the age of 81 in Amarillo, TX. She was born on June 8, 1942, in Shamrock, TX.  She graduated from Quail High School in 1960.  The following year, she became a mother. Ronetta was always a hard worker and worked many jobs during her 60-year career, but her greatest joy was being a mother and grandmother. 

Ronetta loved cooking, reading, crafting, being involved with her church, and spending time with her family. She loved sharing her recipes and family stories with the younger generations. 

She was preceded in death by her parents, Jesse and Pansy Young; four brothers, Johnny, Charles, James Glen, and Dale; and two sisters, Ruthie Childers and Jeanette Jones.

Ronetta is survived by her four sons: Robert Papa of Clarendon, Tom Papa and wife Karen of Austin, James Papa and Jackie Bryant of Amarillo, and Kenny Holt and wife Christy of Panhandle; 13 grandchildren; 10 great grandchildren; her brother Joel Dean and wife Iwana of Amarillo; her dearest friends whom she considered family: Diane Carter, Thelma Miller, and Helen Belcher; and several nieces, nephews, cousins, and close friends.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials be sent to Interim Hospice or Hillcrest Baptist Church.
